The Rise of Emily Miller

Move over Diana Krall and Norah Jones! There’s a new leading lady in town, and her name is Emily Miller.

Readers of Berklee-Blogs may recognize her name from my Singer Showcase post, whom I called “the real star of the showcase.” I also said that I would “pay good money to see her headline a show,” so you can imagine my delight when I found out that Emily was headlining her own show at the Berklee Performing Center for Family Weekend!

Emily couldn’t have had a better opening act than the widely popular and successful Berklee a cappella group Pitch Slapped.

Before the performance began, Berklee played a video real of past performers and famous alumni to really drive home the point that we could be seeing future stars and Grammy-winners at that night’s showcase, a point which I’m sure no one would deny after hearing the singers perform. Speaking of video, you can stream the entire performance and relive the excitement. But if you prefer to read about the show, here are the¬†highlights.
